G'day Dennis,

Northern blue-eyes (from Townsville) will eat eggs and tadpoles, most
certainly purple spotted gudgeons will eat taddies and eggs, possibly
rainbows when they get a bit of size will as well.

Its doubtful that rhads and local blue eyes would eat them. ANGFA Qld
recommends local pacific blue-eyes to members of the frog societies.
